I'm sorry, but did you really just make the contention that nothing America has ever done was as bad as what the Nazis did? Care to remember how that
war ended? Care to remember what Japanese Americans were busy during a good portion of that war? Have you forgotten what happened to the Native
Or do you want more recent examples?
The U.S. Government places sanctions on countries which impact nobody but their populations. Those populations suffer. They starve, they get sick,
they live horrible but short lives and then they die while their dictators continue to live their lives out in elaborate mansions.
The U.S. Government is the world's largest trafficker in small arms. It exports war for profit, the deaths of those wars are on the Government's
The U.S. Government traffics drugs, which have killed millions. I don't want to get into that too much here, per this site's TOS, but check out any
of the hundreds of threads in the forum dedicated to the subject for more information.
The U.S. Government is one of the last in the world that uses depleted uranium in its ammunition, which will over time kill hundreds of thousands of
people - most of them children who will be born with fatal birth defects.
You're right about one thing. The U.S. Government doesn't barbecue Muslims over a grill. They just stick them in places like Abu Ghraib and torture
the everloving crap out of them. They have a practice extraordinary rendition, where they ship prisoners to other countries that allow them to be
tortured for "information." Or sometimes we just keep them in a camp in Cuba and water board them.
The world produces enough food to feed every single person on it, and feed them well. Yet 2 billion people live in famine. Why? The two biggest causes
are poverty and war. The U.S. Government has its hands in nearly every conflict in the world today, in most cases either directly causing the conflict
or deliberately prolonging it. The U.S. Government's foreign economic policies are also a major cause of poverty in the world, including supporting
countries that use sweat shop labor and the previously mentioned strategy of placing sanctions on other countries.
They assassinate U.S. citizens, and have admitted to it. They wiretap us without warrants, and admit to it. They limit our First Amendment rights to
"Free speech zones" and admit to it. They limit our Second Amendment rights under "interstate commerce" laws and admit to it. They violate nearly
all of our rights using similar shady tactics to "limit" them, and admit to it, and they have people like you convinced that you can place limits on
a person's rights without violating them.
When a Government's activities are that far out of control, the sheer number of people they kill and how overt they are in doing so are
inconsequential: At this stage, they have reached the upper limits of evil and the body count is simply a number people can look at to see how
successful at evil they are.
These are just a few examples off the top of my head. The U.S. exports and finances terrorism worldwide as one of its major foreign policy tools.
Their policies have killed millions, they have likely caused billions to suffer. If you think it should be mandatory to serve the Government
responsible for that, you're just a sick, sad little man.
For the record, I love America. I love our rights, I love our people, and I love our dream. I just hate the raging a-holes in the U.S. Federal
Government who have hijacked this country. And no, voting and writing to our politicians does not solve the problem. We are told who to vote for by
the media, we are brainwashed by that media to think that we have to listen to who they tell us to vote for, and I know for an absolute fact that
politicians do not read the mail we send them.
